2012_mammadov “Today, Azerbaijan’s highest court has failed to uphold the country’s legal obligation to execute the judgment of the European Court of Human Rights.

The severity of this development for Azerbaijan as a member of the Council of Europe cannot be underestimated.

Azerbaijan’s flagrant disrespect of the European Convention on Human Rights undermines the entire scope of our cooperation.

The case affects the 47 Member States of the Council of Europe who have a collective responsibility for the implementation of the Convention.

It will therefore be on the agenda of the next meeting of the Council of Europe’s Committee of Ministers as a matter of urgency”.
